TEDx (Technology Entertainment Design) events are independently organized around the globe to share “ideas worth spreading.” This video definitely does the trick, as one of TEDx’s most successful Web sensations. TED’s programs never fail to spread interesting stories and ideas throughout communities and around the Web. This event, presenting Tom Thum, shows off some bizarrely amazing beatboxing skills. He creates sounds of instruments from different countries around the world using only his mouth, and makes it look way too easy! Through his performance, Tom is somehow able to create an imaginative scene without any props, making his one man show funny, unique and hypnotic to watch. In its first week on YouTube, this TEDxSydney video gathered over 3 million views. Although his art form and profession are unconventional, he’s making a career out of something he loves. Tom’s a great example of inspiration and determination paying off. If you’re nervous about trying something new and different because of what other’s might think, just remember: “Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it.  You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.” -Ray Bradbury
